A suitably Christmassy topic…with no mention of sprouts

Hmm.  A suitably Christmassy topic.  It’s a challenge, because what my profession usually do all through December is yap on about moderation and ways to curb indulgence at buffets and blah, blah, blah…zzzz So.  Instead, this Christmas blog will be about feeling good.  And having a merry old time.  I might throw some health ideas […]

A Christmas without the guilt – sounds good right?

Christmas can a challenging time for the wellbeing warrior.  It is a time when the wellbeing warrior can wobble and waver.  When we are assaulted on every side by mince pies, chocolate logs, mulled wine and roast potatoes.  We know we shouldn’t indulge, but…this kind of food festivity only comes but once a year!  You […]

Forget about the results. My 4 part guide to letting go of outcome anxiety

One of the best things I’ve learned this year is this. The harder I try to control my results – my body shape and size and weight – the worse they get. The more I relax and control the bits I CAN control, however, the better all those other things get. The thing about body […]

Why do we do it?

    When we drink 1 cup of coffee all day and realise, when we’re about to go to bed, that that’s all we drank? When we book loads of appointments into our already overflowing diary and leave no time for ourselves? When we eat the ready meal rather than cooking cool recipe we’ve found […]

The sugar hangover (and how to deal with it)

Have you ever woken up feeling like you’ve been hit by a bus? Fuggy head, feeling low, with a big dollop of guilt and shame on the side? If that’s your experience the morning after a night of chocolate/cake/sweet binging, then what you have is a sugar hangover. We feel good at the time, while […]

Are we all just lazy?

Why don’t we do the things we know we should do, when we know we should do them??  Why!?!?!  This is a question that keeps me thinking long into the night.  It’s illogical, irrational and a constant source of chagrin to all of us. We know it’s not laziness – we make great things happen […]

6 strategies for doing what you know you should do, when you just aren’t doing it!

You might know what you need to do to get back into those smaller jeans.  Are you doing it?  Not always, huh? :0> We can know that we should eat more veg, eat less biscuits, exercise more.  We may have been hearing it since we were kids, but it’s not always the case that knowledge […]

Why do you eat?

Cravings are interesting, challenging things. We can crave certain foods because our blood sugar has dropped, as we saw last week. We can crave certain foods because our brain chemistry is out of whack – low serotonin levels will have you seeking salty carbohydrates, for instance. But possibly the most difficult-to-crack causes of cravings are […]

Trigger your actions and triple your success

Trying to change something?  Maybe try using “action triggers” – they could triple your chance of success. I was reading about this in a book called “Switch” by Chip and Dan Heath, whilst on the train to Birmingham going to an event I wasn’t sure I wanted to go to.  You know how you end […]

Angry Birds and Emails

I’ve been reading a book called the Power of Less by Leo Babauta recently.  It’s all about taking control of your life back from all the things that suck your energy and time away. There are the obvious things like Facebook and iPhones clearly, fripperies and such (ever played Angry Birds?  Were you supposed to […]
